Our Values

At IFC, how we accomplish our mission is as important as fulfilling the mission itself.

That’s why we have a set of Core Values that articulate what is most important to us as an Institution, and how we work with each other, our clients, and our partners.

Our Core Values guide the decisions we make and the actions we take.

  • IMPACT – We help our clients solve their greatest development challenges. 
  • INTEGRITY – We do what is right. 
  • RESPECT – We care for our people, our clients, our partners, and our planet. 
  • TEAMWORK – We work together to achieve our goals. 
  • INNOVATION – We learn and adapt to find better ways of doing things.

Being responsible global citizens is good for our business — helping us best serve our clients by attracting and retaining top talent with diverse perspectives; helping our investment potential by ensuring resource efficiency within our own operations; and helping to serve the development agenda globally by strengthening our position as sustainability thought leaders.  It is also the right thing to do for a better future for everyone.
